A GREAT DAY FOR FREEDOM

Pink Floyd

(Gilmour, Samson)



VERSE:

Cm                Cm(add b5)        Cm               Cm (add b5)   

On the day the wall came down, they threw the locks on to the ground

Fm/Ab                                     Gsus4              G

And with glasses high we raised a cry for freedom had arrived 



And on the day the wall came down

The ship of fools had finally run aground.

Promises lit up the night like paper doves in flight.



CHORUS:

     F        G/F      F                       G/F  F        F/C  C

I dreamed you had left my side. No warmth not even pride remained--

     F/C           F           G/F    F                        G/F     F

              And even though you needed me, it was clear that I could not

      F/C  C         C   G/C   G/B   

do a thing for you.



VERSE:

Now life devalues day by day

As friends and neighbours turn away.

And there's a change that even with regret can not be undone.



Now frontiers shift like desert sands,

as nations wash their bloodied hands

Of loyalty, of history, in shades of grey.



CHORUS:

I woke to the sound of drums.

The music played, the morning sun streamed in.

I turned and I looked at you,

and all but the bitter residue slipped away,

slipped away.
